We are delighted to announce our 2017/18 school standards have been released and they are SPECTACULAR once again!

Excellent Pupil Achievement

Pupils at Ambler (and nationally) are assessed as: ‘Working Towards (WT)’ the expected standard for their age, ‘Working At (WA)’ the expected standard for their age, or working at a ‘Greater Depth (GD)’ within the standard expected for their age.  We also use the words ‘Emerging’,  ‘Expected’ or ‘Exceeding’ to convey the same meaning.

Late in Summer Term 2018, pupils in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 6 were assessed formally in accordance with government guidelines.  You will find below some information on how our pupils have performed and, where available, we have included some comparable national data.

The school’s performance tables published by the Department for Education can also be accessed via this link – Ambler Primary School’s Performance Results

Year 1 Phonics Testing

Pupils are asked to read 40 ‘nonsense’ words and ‘real’ words to test their ability to segment and blend phoneme grapheme correspondents. Pupils are considered to have met the required standard if they were able to read 32 or more of the 40 words.

Pupils who do not meet the expected standard will retake the test at the end of Year 2.
